Man Apprehends a Suspect, Then Gets Arrested for Impersonating Cop
A North Carolina man who participated in a police chase that led to five arrests has been charged with impersonating a law enforcement officer.
The car, which contained five people, at first stopped but then sped away, according to WITN.
Police then chased the vehicle.
After about two miles, a black Ford Taurus with its blue lights flashing overtook all of the vehicles.
The Taurus then slowed down, forcing the car being chased to also slow down, and leaving it trapped between the Taurus and the lead police car.
A man later identified as David Adams, 30, then emerged from the Taurus and took control.
Adams reportedly flashed a gun and ordered the driver of the vehicle being chased to get out of the car, according to police. The other occupants of the car were also ordered out of the car.

But the officers involved realized they were not quite sure who Adams was and why he was involved in a police chase.
They ordered him to stop what he was doing.
While the officers were busy with a car full of suspects, Adams left the scene before police could interview him.
On Wednesday, Adams was arrested and charged with impersonating a law enforcement officer.
“He received a $1,500 unsecured bond,” WNCN reported
